On November 7, 2023, the Kenyan Department for Immigration and Citizen Services (DICS) published increased fees for immigration services, including for work permits, visas and consular services, permanent residence, citizenship, passports and the registration of births and deaths.
However, after the High Court suspended the gazette notice, the government revoked it and, on November 14, 2023, published a new notice with adjusted fee increases, which is intended to take effect on January 1, 2024.
The State Department for Immigration and Citizen Services has been directed to conduct and complete a public consultation no later than December 10, 2023.
